So it's hen party time and you're a discerning bunch of belles so you want something infinitely more sophisticated than the traditional night out revelling with sashes and L-plates, something more unique that you can tailor to exactly what you want. Our luxury self catering holiday properties are perfect for celebratory weekends away, and Viney Hill Country House is no exception; it's got heaps of space, a fantastic covered swimming pool, and a big garden with a lovely Scandinavian style BBQ lodge - just imagine when it's late at night and you're all snuggled up in there having a good old chit-chat beneath the fairy lights.
You'll find a few ideas on our Extras page - life drawing classes, craft sessions, cocktail making, pampering sessions - all in the comfort Viney Hill Country House. Book up one of our recommended professional caterers to create a scrumptious celebration feast for you, or have a little soiree on the patio with canapes and champagne. If you want to go out to eat there are several country pubs in the area that are good for lunch or dinner; just up the road is the Cock Inn at Blakeney, and within a few miles are The Woodman at Lydney, The Cross at Aylburton and an award winning gastro pub, The Miners Country Inn at Sling.
The local area is blessed with the most beautiful countryside, so don't miss out on a walk in the fresh air - the Sculpture Trail in the nearby Forest of Dean is good, and if you're the more adventurous types there are all sorts of things for you to do, like canoeing, caving, kayaking and rock climbing with Wyedean Canoe & Adventure Centre or just a few miles away is Go Ape Forest of Dean for low and high ropes. You could have a falconry experience at the International Centre for Birds of Prey or go and be among the butterflies at the Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo. You'll find more ideas for your hen weekend on our Things To Do pages. We need to gently remind you that the maximum number of guests for single sex groups at this property is 14, so do bear that in mind.
